Svenska Amerikanaren (September 28, 1922) The steamship Drottningholm departed from Gothenburg on the 7th of September and arrived in New York City on the 16th. Among the passengers were Lydia Hedberg and Gustav Fonandern. The newspaper wrote: "The above picture shows our old friends, the popular entertainers Mrs. Lydia Hedberg (Bergslagsmor) and Gustav Fonandern. Although rivals on stage they get along fine nonetheless, if you can believe the photograph. They will each undertake new tours through America’s Swedish settlements and no doubt once again receive accolades."
